This is what I have to put together researching parts for a couple months.
Looking for input I already have the case and a SSD that I got for Christmas.
Thanks for advance,

you want a ssd as your bot drive (120g) min in size. swapped out the ram for newer ram sticks. also swapped out the power supply you were over paying for the unit. went with la larger gold unit so you could sli/crossfire latter on.
took out the video card for now. nvidia dropping newer maxwell gpu in a few weeks.

if the nda lifts in feb then you should see eretails getting the ok to drop the price on there gpus to clear them out before nevidia loses a boat load of money when the new gpu go on pre order.

What about going with an r9 290/x or 280/x once they drop in price?

the 290x with after market heat sinks dont look bad in the testing they done online.

It's going to be a couple of months before I get the video card, so I am hoping the bitcoin mining should slow down and non-reference R9 290X to hit the market.
